The structure and function of a transcription-enhancing sequence element in the coding region of the Chlamydomonas reinhardtii rbcL gene was analyzed in Chlamydomonas chloroplast transformants in vivo. The enhancer sequence is contained within a DNA segment extending from position +108 to position +143, relative to the start site of rbcL gene transcription. The sequence remains functional when inverted or when placed 34 bp closer to or 87 bp further downstream of the basic rbcL promoter… CONTINUE READING
